The Hotel was advertised as a twin room with breakfast for Y384 but on checking in;we were informef that breakfast was not free & they were going to change us Y500 for the night,pls all guest avoid this hotel,they are dishonest.😈
This hotel is located just opposite Harbin pedestrian street - Zhongyang Street which is very nice. Plenty to eat and shop in the vicinity. Hotel is clean except that some rooms have stale smoke smell. Luckily the windows can be opened which helps to bring in fresh air.
Good staff and high level of service. Exceptional service provided by concierge Jason who was invaluable in assisting us in travel arrangements both in Harbin and several locations were travelled to afterwards. Room was very good and food was of a high standard.
Excellent breakfasts, comfortable and huge beds, lots of water, wifi, perfect location, friendly staff, six blocks from a Starbucks, good wine, nice coffee shop...nothing lacking at all. Could walk to many places, well appointed rooms.
An often stayed hotel in the very centre of the city, close to the central avenue and St. Sophia Cathedral which are the most famous touristic attractions of the city. Service of the hotel is good, rooms are clean and cozy. Been upgraded to the executive floor and had a pleasant stay. Highly recommended for those who come for a short stay without high demanding of facilities.
We stayed 3 nights here in late Jan 2017 for the Ice Festival. The hotel is great for being able to walk to the pedestrian mall and up to the frozen river. No need for taxis for most activities with our tour included Ice Festival and airport transfers. Room 415 appeared recently renovated and was very suitable for an international traveller. We arrived on an overnight train from Beijing at 07:00 and the hotel let us have access to our room at 09:30; which was much appreciated even though the room had not yet been cleaned. There was cigarette ash and a butt on the toilet floor and the hotel supplies ash trays on the lift areas; so stopping smoking in any Chinese hotel is still not yet sorted. Housekeeping was very good over the multiple days we stayed. Reception and the ground floor restaurant had sufficient english and were always helpful. The food here was well priced and serving sizes were great. There was an in-room safe and the free in room Wi-Fi was speedy and easy to access. Towels were thin. As all Chinese hotels are in winter, the room heating is set way too hot; but we could turn it off and when the window was partly opened; it made the room temp bearable. Outside night temps were many degrees below zero! The hotel was full over all of our stay, so yes the breakfast process was less than ideal but food was mostly replaced and I would rate the food offered as ok to good. Most hotels in China (and Japan) though do not keep the cooked, warm food "hot". The lifts were struggling to cope particularly around breakfast time. We had bouts of major in wall rattling / extraction duct noise between our room and our friends adjacent room for several hours each day. It all went quiet at sleep time though. I stayed at this hotel on my 1st stay in Harbin, 10 years ago and I would still recommend the place for price, position and overall amenities.
I have been here many times. The hotel is just a standard Holiday Inn with a good location. 4 stars at best. The food is ok. The Bar is lackluster and really needs to be improved with it's free buffet.
This hotel is really well situated, just across from Central street. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff very accommodating. There was a problem with our room that couldnt be fixed and we were swapped to a suite very quickly. Onsite are good restaurants and a bar. The breakfast is also good, very substantial choice. Highly recommend
Hotel is right at the bottom of the main road for visiting Harbin, thus, much better Location than, e.g. the Shangri La. Is more expensive as e.g., the Ibis, where I stayed first, but the quality of everything is also much better. I believe that it is a very good Price-service-Level. What, however, has convinced me most and will be Benchmark for any future stay: we missed our flight out of Harbin. The duty Manager, Dora Mao, herself took initiative and in a number of calls she managed to get us on the flight next day (which we were not able to achieve ourselves before...). If ever in Harbin, it will be the Holiday Inn for sure!
This is not a bad hotel at all, but not perfect either. First of all the location is fantastic, couldn't be much better for exploring central Harbin. Our room was also very nice. good size, well equipped and comfortable. On the minus side it was a bit hot in the room and adjusting the control unit did not seem to have any effect on the temperature. The room seemed relatively recently renovated. Some public areas were less than stellar though. There was some kind of terrible looking tarp on the floor in the hallway throughout our stay. Apparently smoking is also allowed in the halls and lobby which is not nice at all. Feelings on the breakfast are mixed. While the breakfast restaurant is quite nice, it is too small and crowded. One morning we had to sit in a neighbouring room which looked like it had not been renovated since the 80's and certainly had not been cleaned for a few days. The weirdest thing about the breakfast was that all coffee cups were chipped. I did not see a single cup without a chip or crack. The staff was nice and helpful, but it never stops amazing me how badly Chinese people speak English, even if they work in an international hotel where they speak with foreigners every day.
